Americans continued feeling chuffed in January 2018 according to two popular measures of consumer attitudes. Consumer Confidence from the Conference Board jumped to 125.4 after the upwardly revised tally of 123.1 (originally 122.1). However, there was a small letdown in the Consumer Sentiment figure from the University of Michigan which moved down a touch, falling to 95.7 from 95.9
Two popular measures of consumer attitudes were mixed in November 2017, but they both remain relatively elevated. Consumer Confidence put out by the Conference Board hit a new 17-year high, reaching 129.5. Consumer Sentiment from the University of Michigan declined to 98.5 from 100.7, the highest peak of the last decade.
